CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Live’ Ratings Sink To Second Lowest Ever, CNN Ties Sixth Worst Primetime Result

CNN’s ‘Piers Morgan Live’ Ratings Sink To Second Lowest Ever, CNN Ties Sixth Worst Primetime Result

By DOMINIC PATTEN | Thursday February 20, 2014 @ 10:11am PST

Piers Morgan’s rocky ratings just took another dive for CNN. On Tuesday, the Brit’s 9PM show had its second worst result ever in the all important adults 25-43 news demographic. With a total audience of 270,000 watching, Piers Morgan Live drew a mere 50,000 viewers in the demo. The only time the stumbling CNN show has fared that poorly since its January 17, 2011 launch was on May 15, 2012. Then the show, then known as Piers Morgan Tonight, pulled in a just 39,000 viewers in the demo. In terms of overall viewers, February 18 was the ninth worst Morgan’s talk show has done. The all-time viewership low for Piers Morgan Live was on February 7 this year when just 235,000 tuned in. Morgan’s cable news rivals The Kelly File on Fox News Channel and The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC did far better last night. The 9PM show got 354,000 and 227,000 in the demo respectively and 2.068 million and 906,000 total viewers – pretty close to what they both had last week with the FNC show even getting a tiny rise in the demo.

Replace him with Ben Swann.

Nah, I'll Pass On That

CNN isn't worthy of Ben Swann. Let the MSM crumble on its own and let the new media rise up. Liberty IS rising!

Not surprising.

I caught the end of PoliticKING on RT America last night (2/20/14). I don't recall who Larry King was interviewing but the question he asked was about the possibility of a third party in 2016. The interviewee said it is a good possibility for someone like Rand Paul or Ted Cruz to go this route...especially Rand Paul (he reiterated), a "liberal Libertarian".

Thought that was rather interesting.

He has a show?

What did he expect?

Selling out to corporate interest by ignoring the will of the people, can only have one outcome that is getting ignored by the people in return.

Great News!

Government supported propaganda continues to sink.

Piers Morgan interviewed by UK police

Feb 14, 2014
ONDON – Prominent CNN talk show host Piers Morgan confirmed Friday that he has been interviewed by British police investigating the illegal interception of telephone voicemails.

Morgan, formerly a tabloid newspaper editor in Britain, was not arrested but was “interviewed under caution” on Dec. 6 by British detectives investigating the long-running phone hacking scandal.

“This was further to a full witness statement I had already freely provided,” Morgan said in a statement. “I attended that interview as requested.”


Much as I hate to say it,

this shows that Piers Morgan has a more intelligent audience than, say, Sean Hannity or Bill O'Reilly. The rule is the same:

~ If you agree with me, I let you talk for a bit.
~ If you don't agree with me, I rudely cut you off.

It's *really, really* annoying - especially if you don't have a short attention span (as either way, the pace is designed to prevent communication with any depth) or if you appreciate civility.

Fox viewers seem fine with it - the superficiality and rudeness both. Apparently many in Piers' (former) audience were not.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

Kevin Pietersen & Arsenal FC


Only thing Piers Morgan should devote his time to is discussing in a slimy manner his fetish for Kevin Pietersen. And also Arsenal FC, Arsene Wenger etc.

OR Getting SMASHED in the head by Brett Lee.

Which are sort of the activities he has been engaged in for the last year anyway.

I propose that this filthbag slimebucket be deported to Canada, along with Samantha Bee of Comedy Central.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

Piers is not reading this

Piers is not reading this website. If he was, he would know that the liberty is a great uniter of people from all walks of life. If he knew that and would dare to promote liberty and self-reliance that on his show, he would be #1.

The goal of the MSM is propaganda

They'd love great ratings of course but only with their controlled message.

So true ..

Maybe he can't read..


All he can do

Is repeat canned talking points for commune style socialism.

He's so lame, a pneumatic body suit can't help him.

Damn I wish just once one of these people would fall so far in grace that they would have to see what it is like to survive in the world they create for the rest of us with their agendized propaganda.



We knew he was on the way out ages ago. So who should replace him?

Mark Dice? Jesse Ventura? Ron Paul? The Judge?

Ben Swann.

Ben Swann.

Given the current state of the media today

I'd say Miley Cyrus. I'll leave you to the horror of your own imagination now.
